Forums - Sales Discussion - Halo 4 sells more in 7 weeks than GT:5 sold in its first year

I thought this was quite interesting, given that both of these games are arguably their respective consoles biggest exclusive game...

Anyway, Halo 4 has sold 7,030,950 in its first 7 weeks on sale. It took GT:5 58 weeks to sell as much as this. Pretty amazing!

It has always been known that Halo games are very front loaded.
Same with gears games. Not that its a bad thing or anything.

Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Two overrated franchises imo.

Game of the year so far:

5. Watch_Dogs
4. South Park: Stick of Truth
3. Infamous Second Son
2. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
1. Bayonetta 2

Pretty good opening for Halo.

Lets see how it does over the next 12 Months. And the 12 Months after. And the 12 Months after.

Impressive opening indeed.

Yay!!!

People are still saying it won't sale 10 million lifetime WTF?

I'm sure full or almost full price sales are worthier to MS than bargain bin sales.
